It’s very rare to see such kindful acts by the players and we are very happy with this moment at the Asian Games and it will be remembered as the act of sportsmanship for always.
Apart from Bhanu, India won three more wushu bronze medals, making this India’s best wushu performance, in terms of a number of medals won, in the Asian Games. Roshibina Devi (women’s 60kg), Santosh Kumar (men’s 56kg) Surya Bhanu Partap (men’s 60kg) and Narender Grewal (men’s 65kg) lost the semi-final Sanda matches against their opponents but took home bronze medals.
In this years’ Asian Games, Indians are in full zest and enthusiasm as the players of all the games are playing exceptionally well and continuing to make our country proud. India stands at place 9 with 17 medals in its accounts. Indian athletes are at their best and even those young age player are doing exceptionally well.
On the day 5th of Asian Games 2018, 15 years old Shooter Shardul Vihan also stole the headlines by winning the silver medal in the men’s double trap event. Staying at the top two positions throughout the game he made a score of 141 in the finals.
